But not all of them. Shockingly, Pitt— whose dad, William Pitt, is Betty's son — was nowhere to be seen! The Shawnee-born actor's last known visit to his elderly grandmother was in 2008, when he made a token appearance with his now-estranged wife Angelina Jolie.

Meanwhile, the nursing facility where ailing Betty lived for nearly a decade — and spent her final agonizing days — had been previously given a one-star rating for quality! Inspectors cited multiple environmental deficiencies, which were deemed an "immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety."

Despite the Allied star's indifference to Betty's tragic end, her obituary listed "grandchildren Brad and Angie Pitt" among the surviving relatives — offering the biggest indication yet that the couple, who split in September 2016, might reconcile!
